QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
How do I buy tickets?
Buy your ticket at Tickster under Tickets. Keep in mind that the earlier you buy your ticket the cheaper it is! Urkult has a maximum number of visitors that we can host, so we recommend buying your ticket before arriving in Näsåker. Any residual tickets will be sold at the Festival Entry. If you have questions regarding your purchase contact Tickster support.
Who gets a discount?
We try our best to maintain reasonable prices for everybody. We offer discounts to Youth between 15–17 year olds and also Seniors 65+. Children below the age of 15 are allowed in for free in company with their guardian.
Does festival tickets include camping?
No, slots at the campsites are not included in the festival tickets. Although you have to have a festival wristband to live on the campsites during the festival. There are several different camping grounds in and around Näsåker that you can book. Information about all accommodation alternatives is on our website under Camping & Accomodation. Usually you can start to book campsites in the beginning of May.
What if I want to live indoors?
Many people ask us how to find accommodation that is indoors. Unfortunately we are not able to find and book accommodation for you. You can have a look under Camping & Accommodation for updated information about how to get in contact with people who might rent out private housing.
Where can I park my car?
During the festival we have a temporary parking ban in the village as well as along the road down to the river. It is for the sake of potential emergency transports. If the parking ban is ignored there will be a fine.
The best alternative is to park your car at the big Parking lot between the church and Highway 90, situated by Sigges family campsite. Read more at our website under the tab How to Get Here.
There will be a road barrier by the church to hinder unauthorized people entering the area during the festival. If your accommodation is inside the road barrier you can get your car pass at Urkults office before the festival, or during the festival you can get it at Markusgården.
Where can I charge my electric car?
Unfortunately there are no car chargers in Näsåker yet.
Where can I find lost items?
Lost items are to be submitted at the Festival Reception at Markusgården, Navet at the festival entry or to the Information shed inside the festival area. The things left behind after the festival is finished will be submitted to Urkults office. All valuables are then turned in to the Police station in Sollefteå.
What kind of food and drinks is there?
There is organic and locally farmed food in the festival. Vegetarian and vegan dished as well as dishes containing meat. At our webpage you can read more under Market & Food.

You can re-fill your water for free inside the Entry to the festival or at Markusgården. However water bottles made of glass are also not allowed inside the festival area, as there are many people including children that walk around barefoot.
The grocery store have extended opening hours during the festival. The gas station ”Stureplan” has a smaller range of groceries. Ingelas café and Flintabaren serve food and there are also a large number of temporary food trucks outside and around the festival area.
